“A car is not a safe location [to store your firearm].” That’s the Atlanta PD’s pronouncement after a visit from Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun agitpropmeisters, at The Trace, whose zeal for public safety [/sarc] brought the high number of firearm thefts from local vehicles to the APD’s attention (and patted themselves on the back for doing so). True? Well . . .
A vehicle’s safety as a firearms storage device depends on whether or not your vehicle is locked, where and when you park it, and how you store a firearm in your car. Trunk? Glove box? Car safe?
Do you store a gun in your car? If so, when, where and how?
[I’m sure some of you will point out that the existence of “gun-free” zones are at least partially responsible for the large number of firearms thefts from cars — a point The Trace somehow missed. Feel free.]
